Default RAF cloth wings... on summer denim jacket.

I picked up this green denim jacket. It was made in 1955 in Derby England.

Do the RAF wings belong to this jacket or were they added sometime in the 55 yearspan of the frock?

I know they used the denin coat for summer or work dress... also over the wool jacket in the winter. But I would have imagined a blue uniform for the RAF!

Also, are they original wings or repop?

Thanks in advance for the info.

NB: If someone knows if the style of the denim jacket stayed the same from the wartime issue.... let me know!
